The "Narcissistic" Part
TRENTY.COM was founded in the 1990s by the mother of our current curator and creator. As much as he appreciates his mother's obsessive love with him he originally declined the idea of having any creation in his name. Trent believed more in the idea of symbolism which can best be summed up by a quote from Christian Bale's Batman:
"People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy and I can't do that as Bruce Wayne. As a man I'm flesh and blood. I can be ignored. I can be destroyed. But as a symbol, as a symbol I can be incorruptible, I can be everlasting."
Also, the "Y" had to be added since TRENT.COM was already taken. Which is kind of a disappointment.
Inspired by Celadon Trucking founderPOLYSEMY LLC begin in Spring 2011 out of an idea that its' founders did not want to wait and have opportunities handed to them but rather take them into their own hands. Originally called I AM M.U.S.I.C. and later IEYE AM the business has undergone several changes in it's 7 year life cycle.
This part will probably contain many quotes.
Charlie Brown is often quoted by stating, "In the book of life the answers aren't in the back." And just as true as that is so is how this website will be.
Polysemy (pronounced pali-seme or puh-lis-uh-mee) is a word rooted in Greek origins that is defined by the coexistence of many possible meanings for a word or phrase.
Our creator and founder, Trent K. Hawthorne-Richards believes that people are more than one thing and whether we are aware of it or not play different roles for different situations. For example: a lady could be a daughter, a mother, a teacher, a business woman the same way a man could be a son, a husband, a leader, a student.
Mr. Hawthorne-Richards believes by embracing a polysemous mindset you can unlock a higher level of consciousness that allowed you to become one with yourself and your surroundings. His mission, and ours has been to use such tools such as entertainment, film, music and others to give individuals a gateway into which they can observe their humanity to become and do better by their contemporaries.
Meet the Team
Although, not pictured Trent works with several individuals and companies who not only motivate him but allow him to flourish. Overly used and cliché but nonetheless true, there is no "I" in team. Trent believes that without a strong team of mentors, consultants and business partners what he can do is not possible.
